OIG issues audit reports on Epogen

The OIG released several audit reports on Epogen payments to various facilities of Fresenius Medical Care. The OIG found that claims errors occurred because staff responsible for documenting and flagging the patients’ files for changes in ordered Epogen amounts did not always follow the policy and procedures in the Fresenius Manual for ensuring that changes in the units of Epogen ordered were properly identified and entered into the Fresenius System. The OIG determined that these errors resulted in overpayments.
